Default Re: Crumpled Korker

It looks like you are using 3/8" ribbon. What size dowel are you using? For 3/8" ribbon I like to use 1/4" dowels. For smaller korkers (below 2.5 inches in diameter) I like to use narrower width ribbon - 1/4" - baked on 3/16" dowels. I use about 20-25 pieces and tie them instead of sewing. Sometimes the pieces still curl around each other but there are enough pieces that it still looks full; plus with the narrower ribbon and smaller dowels, they don't curl around each other so much as the wider ribbon. HTH
